Petroleum jelly, is a translucent,( semi solid) jelly consisting of a mixture of hydrocarbons, waxes, mineral oils, bla bla bla……Fashion on a budget today is not here to tell you what petroleum jelly is, tho we have somehow renamed this as VASELINE ( Vaseline is a brand name). Today we want to tell you how to use the most out this wonderful necessity.
Petroleum jelly is used mostly during the harmattan cause ain’t nobody want to be looking like this ,
1.AS moisturizer; There is no dry skin that doesn’t respond to petroleum jelly, you can add lotion to this and get a whole moisturized self for a long period of time,* if you have an oily skin you should use less amount of it.
2.Foot Softener; as a self proclaimed advocate for soft clean feet. Keep rough and chapped feet away, by applying petroleum jelly to your feet after washing them .when going to bed or lazying around you can apply to your feet and put on some socks. *you should have a separate socks for these as they could get oil stains.Doing this saves you a lot of stress and money from the heel balm ,miracle foot drama.
3.Can be used to make perfume last a little longer ; Apply little at areas you apply your perfume and get extra time with your scent..
4.To get a dewy look; for some of folks that love the glowing look you can use petroleum jelly to enhance that glowing look.(PS: its best to use coconut oil but in cases when coconut oil is not available your jelly will never disappoint). Also if you have an oily skin this is not for you or you use way less ..
5.Makes opening a nail polish easier after use; you know how your nail polish get dried and opening it gets difficult, after use apply a little petroleum jelly to the neck of it so that next time opening it will be easy.
6.AS LIP BALM; yes mostly for the guys, you don’t have to be licking your lips when you want to talk, your lips don’t have to look like they have been on a journey through the desert.You can apply petroleum jelly , you want to go to bed apply, when you are sitting at home apply, before you leave your house apply, have a small size you can carry with you.
